Homebuyers body FPCE disagrees with an amendment in insolvency law by stating at Parliamentary panel on finance that there should be a doorway for the property owners or buyers to seek in front of National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) to raise problems against default developers. A letter from Forum of People’s Collective Effort (FPCE) has been provided to JayantSinha, chairperson of the Standing Committee of Finance. In the last session of the Parliament, the amendment of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Second Amendment) Bill, 2019 which was revised in IBC, 2016 and then presented in the last session and hence this is further presented to the Standing Committee on Finance.
Authority has been formed in December to publicize the bill as it was failed to pass in the session. The authority has made a team of 10% allottees of the same project to present a joint application to initiate the process of insolvency against the defaulted realtors. FPCE president, AbhayUpadhyay clearly stated that they strictly disagree with the proposed amendment with the specification inserted in clause 3 of the provided bill which is revised the section 7 of IBC, 2016.
He also explained in brief that there should be a way in for the homebuyers in the amendments to initiate the code jointly against the realtors and companies. Some specifications differ from the interest of the homebuyers by giving some unwanted conditions on them which can be useful for some developers to exist currently. He mentioned that the authorization refers to the clauses of amendment illegal, illogical and regressive.
As per the requirement of FPCE, they want a small way to approach NCLT to present certain difficulties and problems. The authorized body asked that how will the homebuyers know that how many units have been sold to ascertain the calculation of 10% of total units in realty sector projects when the 10% is counted less than 100.
AbhayUpadhyay also said that the homebuyers can't stay in hotel to maintain the team together as the political parties do. The association stated that particular homebuyers can't contact the other buyers of the same project to provide a joint plead for bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings against the realtors. For this reason, they jointly plea for the correction in the insertions and amendment which is against the buyers. The deputation asked for the appointment from the pan India to appeal in front of the Committee to present the difficulties
“The realtors and homebuyers should maintain the directives of the amendments. The developers should be very clear about the projects in their briefing to protect the buyer’s interest. This will help the developers to maintain a good reputation for smooth going business with profit and the buyers will also not lose the faith in real estate. If the selling process gets harmed then it can affect the economy” Said, Mr. Mahesh Somani: Vice President - NAR India & Chairman : National RERA committee, NAR India.
